Bookkeeping Is Not Always The Answer

Crunching numbers and solid bookkeeping is part of the game when you’re running a business.

2015 Client Letter

I often like to muse to friends, family and Nth Degree’ers about how the lynchpin for starting Nth Degree CPAs was to create a firm that’s deeply rooted in its relationship with clients, staff and business partners. In my opinion, the bedrock of any solid relationship is open communication and transparency.
